Jennings and Ponder

Below is a link to a broadcast of two great storytellers, Tim Jennings and Leanne Ponder.

It opens with Four Friends and a Tiger, a tale from the Panchatantra, told in their unique tandem style which is incredibly polished yet remains so spontaneous.
The tale is followed by an in-depth interview, one which offers many insights into the art of the storyteller.
Tim's advice is to watch the broadcast in full-screen.
My advice is to watch the interview to the end.
(And then go to their website to order The Vampire Princess.)
